I am new at this and was using an old Redding Side Dial measure. It was good enough for BP cartridge the way I shoot, but now I am starting to load .45 ACP smokeless for a 1911. Charges much smaller and consistent precision is more important. (I think).
So now I am looking at a new measure and the RCBS Uniflow and Hornady Lock n Load are the ones I am considering.
I bought a clone of the Lee Perfect and unfortunately it is designed in such a way that consistent repeatable measurements are problematic.
I am an embarrassing tightwad, bought a measure off of eBay for ten bucks, figuring I couldn't lose, only to find out that the measure is only worth about ten bucks.
I am very happy to read this thread.
